So fundamental to our faith and our relationship with God, prayer can be both public and private, communal and individual. Many learn to pray by listening to others, but how many turn to the Bible to understand what it is we do when we pray? These insights reveal the remarkable real meaning of prayer, its power and its purpose.
Foreword by John Bell
William Barclay (1907-1978) is known and loved by millions worldwide as one of the greatest Christian teachers of modern times. His insights into the New Testament, combined with his vibrant writing style, have delighted and enlightened readers of all ages for over half a century. He served for most of his life as Professor of Divinity at the University of Glasgow, and wrote more than fifty books--most of which are still in print today.
1907 - 1978
William Barclay once said that his life's aim was to help new generations "to know better their Bible, their God and their Saviour".
The words and works of this great communicator of the Gospel inspire and sustain the Christian faith of thousands all over the world.
Born in Wick, Barclay studied at the University of Glasgow before becoming a Church of Scotland minister in 1933. He returned to the university as a lecturer in New Testament language and literature in 1947 and was appointed Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism in 1963.
'The William Barclay commentaries are absolutely fantastic and I wouldn't give up my set for anything.' -- Steve Chalke 'Barclay is essential reading.' -- Diane Louise Jordan 'The reappearance of these New Testament commentaries is a cultural event of the first order.' -- Ward Blanton, Senior Lecturer, Dept of Theology & Religious Studies, University of Glasgow
